  • Pastebot iPhone App is a Cut - and Paste - Above the Rest



    The iPhone has gained a cool new clipboard app from developer Tapbot. Taking the iPhone's copy and paste functionality to a whole new level, Pastebot bestows many of the attributes we've longed for in our beloved handset.

    The new app, which is available now for download, was profiled this morning on 9to5mac. Checked it out myself and definitely understand why so many iPhone users are pleased with the offering.

    Pastebot lets you copy anything you like to Pastebot's clipboard, including images, you simply need to employ iPhone OS
    3.0's native copy-and-paste tools in any other app, then run Pastebot to automatically tap it into that apps clipboard. Create new text clippings within the app, or import a photo from the camera or your photo library.
    Pastebot really helps the iPhone tap into an assortment of commonplace utilities that are taken for granted on most computers but sorely lagging on virtually all smartphones. As easy and efficient to use as any app of its caliber can be, Pastbot works as one might expect. After saving your designed image, text, etc. to the clipboard, you can do almost anything imaginable with it.

    Once you have assets inside your clipboard you can engage in sundry editing operations, using tools like find-and-replace, crop photos, add color filters, or wrap lines in HTML tags. Organize your clippings in folders and use the built-in search to find what you need quickly.
    Similarly, if you obtain the Pastebot Sync companion app for your Mac, you can undertake all sorts of cool and highly practical actions. For example, one can easily export text or images to the iPhone via WiFi by just copying them. Conversely, you can also transfer clippings in Pastebot from your iPhone right over to your Mac.

    It works, it's cool, it's of the standard you would expect from a credible developer like Tapbot, and it's long, long, long overdue.

      I would like to be able to copy and paste text that I can not select. For instance, I can only copy text when I can edit it. I would like to be able to copy text that I can not edit.

      Will this app do that?

      This is hilarious. I think someone at Apple is gonna get their asses chewed for this little mistake. I just downloaded this app, and one of the example images it has stored (from the app) has ********* in it, in Cydia no less

      I prefer Action Menu Plus (Cydia store). If I need a few image editing effects on my phone, I'll use Ps.

      Action menu lets you paste your history without having to exit your current application. When you bring up the cut/copy/paste options, you get a "history" button, too. Press that, and you get a list of everything you copied, and paste whatever you want. It's really nice.

      It really helps to watch the demo video to get a full grasp of just how amazing this app is.

      Not enough here to get me to leave Action Menu.

      Action Menu rocks the mic!!

      I suppose if you are not jailbroken or dont want to take the step up to the big leagues, this app is for you.

      I guess I just don't really get this one. I can copy/paste things into Evernote too. What's the big deal?

      uh, no. I haven't copied anything from Cydia, nor have I copied any of the other images in the pic I posted. All of the other images showed up in the OP's pic as well, so they came with the app as examples. I just found it funny that it shows Hack... And their apps in Cydia, which is a no no with apple

      That would make perfect sense... except I do not have that app installed on my phone, so I didn't proclaim anything. that being said, I would have to say that I would have a different app check marked, but again, I'm not proclaiming anything.
